TAKE HOLD OF YOUR BLESSING…DON’T LET GO!
-‘Hold What’Cha Got…!’
(Old Slavery-Time Saying)
Sitting back and pondering ALL of the Blessings that GOD has added to My life I began to think about how We as humans can be Blessed with others in our lives and be so unappreciative of the Blessing of that individual that GOD has placed in our life. We are Blessed with a person in our lives to share LOVE and life with but at the same time We are always searching for something more or seeming to be in search of another with ‘just a bit more’ than what the person in our lives has or provides.
We sit back and say to ourselves, ‘If only He was more passionate and LOVING?’ ‘If only She was more adoring and believed in Me?’ ‘If only He made more money or had status?’ ‘If only She would listen to Me?’ ‘If only He had a nicer body?’ ‘If only She had a shapelier figure?’ ‘If only He or She was better in bed?’ ‘If Only…?’ As humans, We just seem to always want more than what We have in the individual that GOD has provided for us causing us to go out searching for more when what We need, and TRULY Want, is right there in front of us already in our lives.
I wonder why this is. Is it Fear? Fear of missing out on someone else? Fear of having to be vulnerable with another individual? Fear of having to open your Heart to another? Fear of commitment? Fear of quality over quantity? Fear of having to give up a past way of life or living? Fear of the unknown? As I sit here typing this, I just wonder…
It’s akin to the material things We’ve accumulated. No matter how many material things We acquire, We want more or We want the next best thing in the line-up even when the thing We have at the present time is working just fine for us, from automobiles, to cell phones, to computers, to appliances, to clothing. This is a sad enough case but when We tend to treat others like material things, always looking for the ‘next best thing’ or ‘wanting the next Woman or Man in the line-up,’ when We already have the Blessing of another in our lives, We are definitely lost.
I feel that if We sit back and consider what GOD has done for us by placing a Good Person in our lives, We would be more appreciative and stop looking for what We already have right under our noses and in our Hearts. GOD doesn’t add anything BAD to us, it’s only what We do with what HE gives us that causes it to go BAD or to be TAINTED.
It’s time to appreciate what We have or have been Blessed with, Humanly and Materially and sit back and enjoy life to its fullest. It’s what GOD wants for us.
So, My Friend…’Hold What’Cha Got…And, enjoy it for what GOD made it to be for You!’
I’m ‘Holdin’ What I Got!’
